Looking for Something Good to Eat? Food Trucks Are Ready to Go
Ye Olde English Fish & Chips
You’ve probably eaten at Ye Olde English Fish & Chips food truck at one of the local events in Aroostook County. They are easily recognizable at the fair and on Main Street in Presque Isle.

Maine Street in Presque Isle
You can also see them on Maine Street in PI. Alexander said they started on Main Street during the pandemic when all the festivals and events were closed. “We had to come up with another alternative of what to do. We started setting up on Main Street where we got permission from the town as well as a private owner.”
Ye Olde English Fish & Chips have many locations they serve with their two food trucks, “We go from Presque Isle down to Vermont.” They are well known and spend a great deal of time around their central Maine base during their season from May to October.
Special Events & Catering
When they aren’t selling at a fair or festival, Ye Olde English Fish & Chips does catering for special events. “We picked up a lot of side catering jobs including the Professional Loggers of Maine. We do a lot of their events throughout the week for special luncheons. We do everything. All different types of stuff.”
